Host File Edit Help!

Dec 12, 2010 10:28AM PST

Hello! Just yesterday, I was trying a Horizon 360 Bypass hack but one of the instructions says:
Ok, first got into:

Open a file named "hosts" with NotePad.
Add this:

69.128. 108.4

Then when I add the data # 69.162. stuff into the Hosts file, the Horizon doesn't show up as VIP even though it's supposed to! Could someone help or make the correct Hosts file??

What are you trying to do exactly?

There are a lot of people who abuse the HOSTS file and try to make it into something that it's not, so getting an idea of what you're trying to do first would be helpful in figuring out if someone is leading you down a blind alley.

Just to note Jimmy, that hack

is typically used to bypass the normal paid for VIP and allow login. They run the crack file and then follow the instructions to modify the host file.

I doubt it, hacking or illegal downloading is not smiled upon here.

When we see, 'bypass' and 'hack' we get concerned.

When I attempted to visit I was redirected to so that tells me you're trying to hack into somewhere, or hack something.

Sorry, Forum Policy forbids us from helping with such things so I am locking this discussion.
